What do these ultrasound findings indicate?

Posted on Tue, 16 Jun 2015 in Abdominal Pain
Question: I had an ultrasound screening for abdominal aortic aneurisym which was normal, but there was a midline suspected abnormality found the size of 14.8 cm x 13.9 cm x 16.1 cm. I don't have pain unless someone presses on my abdoman. I am obese (42 as opposed to 30) but after losing 30 lbs, my abdoman continues to stay large and possibly enlarging. I look around 8 mo pregnant. I am 61, menopause several years ago, started light spotting or bleeding 18 mos ago, and have nausea often after eating or drinking fluids. I have much trouble with frequent urination and seem to have a uti any occasion I see the doctor, which isn't often. I am type 2 diabetic also taking metformin only, successfully. I am scared to death about what they saw in the ultrasound. Any ideas what it MIGHT be?

You may need recent blood sugar level,urine RE/ME and culture/sensitivity.
